My Strom buddy and I would like to ride the Burr Trail in May. What is the best way to check road conditions on the day of our ride? Should we call the HQ of Capitol Reef Nat Park? Or inquire with someone in Boulder? We plan to ride the Trail from West (Boulder) to East.

Thanks for the help!

The Burr trail is mostly paved until it reaches the National Park, that's where it turns to dirt and takes thru the national park to henderson. If you are going thru I would recommend calling Grand Staircase Escalante national park or Capitol Reef nat. Park. I'm sure the people living in Boulder would also know about road conditions, but I don't know who to ask.

Wife and I did the burr trail a few years ago, get a large SD card for the camera. :thumbup:

Call and/or visit this BLM field office when you get here.

Escalante Field Station
755 West Main Street
Escalante, Utah 84726
Phone: (435) 826-5600

They'll have daily road condition reports for the Burr and others. In addition to the reports, they have access to real time data from over 30 remote weather stations throughout the area.

Almost forgot to mention another...
A very small, but useful BLM desk inside the visitor's center at Anasazi State Park, Boulder. Easy to miss if you don't know it's there. They'll also have daily road reports, but not the extensive weather data. This one is less than a 1/4 mile from the turn onto the Burr.

Anasazi State Park
Boulder, Utah 84716
(Open Seasonally April - November)
Phone: (435) 335-7382

If you ride through SLc Utah Let us know, maybe a few of us will show you the proper way to get there and Ride some of the way with you.
There are a few of us that go there every year in July.
We usually stay in Thousand lakes camp ground, Ask for Big E. :thumbup:He's a motor cycle rider that runs the place.
He knows everything about the area.
If you go do Hells Back Bone and Hogs Back also, you should not miss them.:thumbup:( a few miles from Bolder in the other direction)

Thanks Trooper, I did see those two roads you mentioned and I believe we will be riding them.

I wish we could hook up with you guys, but at this point we are not sure of the exact date we will be passing through. Probably won't know until shortly before. Thanks anyway for the offer!
